    Sure you can. I had a 03 RIVA Stage1 GP, so may be different. At certain speeds it would start boucning 30-40 range when just cruising. Other than that a great ski. I miss it.

    yeah it likes to bounce and porpoise with my dad and i on it but once its on a plain it doesent seem to stress too much. mine took me and my dad 60 on 2 cylinders

    so is it a bad idea to carry 350-370 pounds on it?

    well actually thats the pointit takes longer to get on plane,the pump is too down in the water to work up speed and have the rideplate riding the surface.But hey, its not about speed or performance, a GPR is really a one person race/wavejumping ski.MFEAR,when its a beautiful day out there and she's got her arms around your waist near mr. happy ,just cruise around and have fun....



    btw Always have the passenger board from the stern (back) under any circumstances,you'll both get tossed over.The GPR has the grab bar, some skis don't....good luck

    hah, thanks for the advice

    Think there's extra strain on the pump tunnel with 2 people since the back end will be more submerged than normal?

    Actually the manual states that girlfriends should ride up front facing backwards. Wives on the other hand should ride in back and scream like a banshee for u to slow down. Page 67 I think
